ImageGear for .NET v21 features enhanced OCR, SVG display of Microsoft Office files
TAMPA, Fla. – August 6, 2013 – Accusoft, the leading provider of document, content and imaging solutions, today announces version 21 of its ImageGear for .NET software development kit (SDK) in editions for .NET 32-bit and 64-bit, Winforms, ASP.NET and WPF environments.
The ImageGear for .NET SDK gives developers the tools they need to add high-performance capabilities such as image editing, scanning, file compression, barcode reading and optical character recognition (OCR), annotation, and printing to their applications, and is the imaging SDK of choice for developers at technology leaders such as 3M and Citigroup. Applications built with ImageGear for .NET offer viewing and image-editing tools for more than 100 different image file types, including Microsoft Office files, TIF, JPEG, PDF, CAD and many more. The SDK can even be used to enable cloud-based scanning services.
Version 21 builds on the powerful optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities in the DLL 32-bit edition. The accuracy of OCR results have been improved, with a 48% increase in accuracy for PDF files in Western languages and a whopping 69% increase for Asian Languages. And all the OCR power of the DLL 32-bit edition is now available in the DLL 64-bit edition as well. An improvement to ASP.NET controls enables the display of Microsoft Office files in Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) format.
The new version features many smaller enhancements as well, such as support for new PDF and PS file formats, and improvements to the rendering of Microsoft Office Open XML PowerPoint Files, which now supports global background pictures, line charts, scatter charts, and PowerPoint shapes.
